Enter the Basketball Champions League Trash Talk with Vitor Benite of Hereda San Pablo Burgos and Dedric Lawson of Besiktas Icrypex as the first guests of the brand new weekly show.

The Champions League is set to formally introduce the Monday “Game of the Week” with back-to-back champion Burgos hosting the Turkish side at Pabellon Multiusos Coliseum Burgos on Monday night, 20:30 CET. The opening game of the 2021-22 Regular Season was previewed by Benite and Lawson.

“I think the expectations are high, especially with fans back in the gym. Everybody wants us to get another title,” explained the two-time champion, “We have a whole new team and a new coach. Maybe it’s going to take some time to get in the chemistry and the rhythm of the game.”

The sixth Champions League season tipping off at Burgos certainly stirs plenty of excitement as the remaining Regular Season participants are slated to follow on Tuesday and Wednesday.
